    So i usually film in 1080p. But the other night i thought id try 4k for fun, and if it looked good i would start using it more. but then i realized that my gopro only does 15fps in 4k, and the images looked awesome, but were very choppy. so why would anyone want to film at 15fps? is there something i'm missing?

    It's normal that 15fps was chopppy, human eyes need 24fps (PAL) or 30fps(NTSC) to see video without lag.

    I use 1080p 60fps (for slow motion) flying P3 Advanced, nice video for Youtube :)

    @15fps, it will always be choppy for your eyes, no secret tricks here

    other thing to know is that to read a 4K file (even at higher FPS), it really need a good computer with a good CPU and GPU (graphic card)

    My mac air reads 4k with ease, but my real question was why would anyone want to even have 4k in 15fps?! what is the point, if its choppy is cant be used

    Hoh, you have the power to read 4K :) , sorry !

    15fps can be use to give some special effect in a movie/shot/video.
